Does this really matter in the end? Really? Isn't it more about how
you treat other people, etc.?
Books... A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith, and God-Shaped
Hole, by Tiffanie DeBartolo, The Golden Compass (no, but
seriously), Gatsby, and anything by Jonathan Kozol. Have been
re-reading some classics lately which feels really good. Currently
enjoying "How The Other Half Lives" by Jacob Riis. It's a study of
tenement life in NYC during the late 1800's. Dry, but
Movies...Tough to narrow it down. Bronx Tale, Help!, In Brugges,
Cool Hand Luke, Fierce People, Sleepers, Modern Times, Wizard of
Oz, Wet Hot American Summer, La Strada (or really anything with
Giulietta Masina), Hard Day's Night, Across The Universe, The Ten.
Any large ensemble comedy which results in a sweet ending where
they all end up at the same party/concert/shopping mall, etc (Love,
Actually being a prime and superior example), and anything by the
Coen brothers, John Waters, Wes Anderson, David Cronenberg, or
Christopher Guest. More Michael Shannon, please!
TV is getting better though, eh? That being said, I've very excited
that My Two Dad's is now available on DVD.
...? Why? Yummy.
I like that kind the best. I also quite like liverwurst, black
licorice, burnt cheese and buttered popcorn Jelly Belly jelly beans
(though not at the same time). Yup. Take it. Oh, and cheese is
I'd also be happy (and gigantic) to eat what I ate while in New
Orleans, with lots of Crystal hot sauce, for the rest of my
I Love, love, love music
. I'm pretty much listening to music
from the moment I wake up until I go to sleep (can't sleep with
music on though). My favorite Pandora stations is...probably a toss
up between 90's NY Rap music and Incense and Peppermints. I've had
a healthy, and I'd like to think charming, lifelong love affair
. There's also quite a lot of other stuff that gets me
excited. Everything from The Prodigy to Robert Johnson. Jeff
Buckley's music sets my heart on fire. I also listen to ABBA and
make no apologies. I used to work at a live music venue, so all I
had to do was show up to work to hear great, new music. I don't
have cable, or a radio...so I have to go by word of mouth for the
new jams. This explains why I still listen to PM Dawn fairly
regularly. Don't judge me, and I won't judge you. Got it?
